Bio-Plastic” refers to plastic produced out of biomass as all so called bio-products. They belong to the bio-based chemical family. They may be used for industrial fibers (bio-fibers) and chemicals (bio-chemical). The bio-platics are biodegradable through composting. Some can be composted under the harsher conditions of domestic composting, while others biodegrade in the soil.


The bio-platics are innovative chemical products made of substances obtained from plants, such as corn starch, and biodegradable polymers obtained both from renewable raw materials and fossil raw materials.

Manufactured in granular form and they can be processed using the most common transformation techniques for plastics.

Bio-platics can be used to create products whose characteristics are similar to or even better than those of traditional plastics, but which are perfectly biodegradable and compostable.

Bio-platics may be complected with variable quantities of biodegradable polymeric complexing agents to create a variety of molecular superstructures with a wide range of properties that can be put to many different uses.

Bio-plastics have numerous applications and areas to be used. Examples include agricultural applications (mulching film, twine), catering (plates, cutlery, cups, and trays), packaging (fresh fruit and vegetables, muesli, bakery products), accessories, toys and biofiller for the automotive sector.

The bio-plastics are part of the fastest growing markets of the Oil & Gas and Petrochemical industry, thus the development of the bio-plastics technologies are at the source of new business model for most of the Majors.
